Winning everywhere except the score.
These last few games really highlight the lack of an elite scorer or two on this team.
Let's just hope the bad luck is all used up in these shitty games and we bury pucks come the real season.
Is miller as bad as his line in the box score tonight? Is this just a matter of the limited chances were high quality or are these softies?
Sure would like to have Perron back and send them Berglund instead. I'd even let them keep Paajarvi as well. Berglund has been awful this year again like the prior 3 years.
Haha I completely forgot he was on our team still. Never a good sign from a forward.
The only time I noticed Berglund last night was when we were on the power-play, down by 1 (I believe) and he was coming in with the puck off the point, got some room just inside the top of the circle, had an open look in prime scoring location, there was a bit of a screen in front of the net... and then he peeled off looking to pass to the point. I nearly threw my beer glass across the room I was so pissed.
Other than that I didn't notice him once.
I remember that play...and I yelled a couple things at the tv at the time.
Berglund does that a lot. He puts his head down and has something in mind and is oblivious to everything else, which is usually the better play. He frequently passes up open ice when peeling off the boards and turns into traffic, and misses open passing lanes because he has his head down with the puck.
His situational awareness and able to adjust to what's around him isn't great.
It is certainly frustrating.
